  • We visited the Aquarium yesterday and spent about 1.5 hours there. Exhibits were well done, educational and work seeing. We did think the price was a bit high compared to other Aquariums.

  • The aquarium is a great place to stop. Straightforward entrance to the structure: the aquarium is on the waterfront thus there is an extraordinary view and you can without much of a stretch excursion outside too. :) It is 10 minutes from the architecturally significant area in Philadelphia. Extremely advantageous. Plan likewise: it was exceptionally occupied. Furthermore, can be a test so that the little ones could see. Security was speedy and genuinely look at nothing. The displays are efficient, lovely clean, and all around kept. You can perceive things haven't been refreshed in that frame of mind for years however that is normal in 2022. The shows were specially designed for youngsters, as opposed to the Baltimore aquarium which is somewhat more outfitted towards adolescents and grown-ups. There were different creature petting displays, a little children's jungle gym, shading, and different intelligent stations all through the aquarium. There was a lot of staff for the number of visitors and there were no sits tight for any display. The petting shows were very much controlled and not a chaotic situation, as I have seen at different zoos and aquariums. The main thing that was somewhat difficult was finding an aquarium staff part to pose any inquiries. Other than that: most certainly an incredible encounter for all ages. By and large an excellent encounter.
  • First time visiting. Good regional aquarium. The central tank with sharks, turtles and fish is impressive. Multiple ways to appreciate it including a tunnel and an overhead bridge. Also have hippos, which is not something I've seen at other aquariums. Numerous touch tanks with rays and horseshoe crabs. Overall, the exhibits are not as visually impressive as those at the Baltimore Aquarium but there is more for young kids to do and see at the Adventure Aquarium. Admission is quite pricey so take advantage of the $20 membership upgrade deal being offered if you plan to visit more than once. With an annual membership upgrade, two visits will more than cover your individual costs. Really wish they offered a family membership deal. Doesn't seem to be very common at museums in the Philly area for some reason. Perhaps something the aquarium should consider. Parking is conveniently located across the street and the rates are flat at $10 per visit.
